    I have been working at Coca-Cola Company full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good pay for the job, pretty good benefits. Most people are a pleasure to work with, lots of places to move around, great if you plan to work hard

    Cons

    Management doesn't always hold people accountable, company lacks some ethics or morality with some product placement (tum-e-yummie's), almost cult like obsession in management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work-life balance would create a healthier work environment. Not everyone wants to go into stores to view displays on there "family" time, accepting that might save management a lot in divorce lawyer fees...

    Frustrating--With a New Auto Policy that is Questionable

    I have been working at Coca-Cola Company

    Pros

    Outside sales. My customers make it all worthwhile.

    Distribution is much improved. Our customers can expect their deliveries on time and in full.

    Cons

    The new auto policy will cost Coca-Cola Refreshments a sizable portion of their sales force--and will make recruitment and retention nearly impossible.

    Support from pricing control and the contracting department is virtually non-existent. Senior leadership is completely disconnected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rescind the new auto policy that requires me to buy a new vehicle that is worth $18,000 every five years. It is immoral and it will be nearly impossible to hire and retain new sales people.

    Focus less on "sales capability" and more on support staffing levels and training.
